Even though you posted a one liner; Acorn is interesting and deserves a little talking about too. A very nice red haring for the GOP who loves to
side step the issue with this, and of course Fox News bangs on the drum. Interesting that in the last election charges against Acorn were brought up
and nobody was convicted, in fact the justice dpt. refused to go forward on further investigations do to lack of evidence, and then key people were
fired by the administration for refusal to investigate. This year same story. It's not voter fraud, what they are talking about is voter
registration fraud; two entirely different things. This is where people who get paid on a quota basis for registrations, goes out and instead of
actually registering real people, register bogus ones. Elections officials in the end however, must determine if "Micky Mouse" gets the green light
to go and vote. This is why it's such a bogus issue. It's also why we have election commissioners to be sure that only real people are accepted to
register. Moreover when McCain looses it offers the conservatives and Neo-cons a convenient scapegoat, albeit a false one. People are getting so
sick and tired of this Rovian strategy...smear, fear, and distract everyone with scarecrow issues and red herrings. Unbelievable!
Nevertheless, it's good that you and others are interested in the issue at hand here. Moreover, even if acorn activities and allegations of
fraudulent registration applications are raising eyebrows, then hopefully it will bring people into the fold here and get them to see the real
situation of fraud, and that is in the systematic fraudulent strategy of massive strategic purges of millions on voter rolls and tons of tossed out
ballots all over the United States.
